COMMENTS

A Lambda word is a symbolic sequence that encodes differences in the sequence i+j*t, where t is irrational, 1 < t < 2. This is the Fibonacci Lambda word, t = (1+sqrt(5))/2. The word is achieved by connecting the position numbers of the integers in order from a transpose of the array form of A216448 (0,0), (1,0), (0,1), (2,0), (1,1), and then encoding the vectors starting with (1,0) -> 0, (-1,1) -> 1, (2,-1) -> 2, (-1,1) -> 1.

A Lambda word is a right infinite rich word on an infinite alphabet.
